Have you been interested in learning more about liposuction, but nervous about what recovery entails?
You’re not alone. Liposuction has earned a slightly negative reputation over recent years, thanks to the manual processes involved in breaking up and removing fat. Traditionally, liposuction recovery would take several weeks, in which post-op patients would have to contend with hefty amounts of swelling and bruising. View Gallery
But liposuction has changed over recent years – and now, thanks to SmartLipo, liposuction recovery is surprisingly fast.
How Does SmartLipo Work?
Before we dive into how long it takes to recover from SmartLipo, it’s important to understand just why this liposuction method has sped up recovery time.
SmartLipo (also known as laser liposuction) uses laser heat energy to liquefy fat cells in the targeted treatment area. The heat is delivered via the cannula, which is fed to the treatment area through a tiny incision. Once the fat is liquefied, it’s drained via the cannula, resulting in less catastrophic fat removal. The entire procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, thus reducing any risks normally associated with general anesthesia. View Gallery
